Recommend me a DX10 - Page 3

post #21 of 25
is said is less than twice as fast,meaning that the 8800GTS is less than 2x faster than a 8600GTS.I was not saying that the 8600 was faster.

I guess they say stupid things like that for the same reason you just did. Just because 3D Mark '06 gives you a score on your card doesn't mean you are going to get the same real world performance.
Then what it is the piont of doing benchmarks if they dont mean anything?will i am sure that you got 8000+ in 3dmark 06 but that dosent mean anything right 3D mark 06 means nothing,it just throws out numbers right?

Yes very true, however the 8800GTS are still faster than all DX9 cards when used for DX9 games on XP.

I would not be put off by the lack of games at the moment. by the time DX10 is the norm faster graphics cards will be abundant

The 8600gts is a waste of money, if you want to play any dx10 games at decent fps then at least get the 8800gts 320mb version.The 8600gts has a 128-bit memory interface compared to a 320-bit. Huge difference. And 3dmark 06 scores do matter to an extent, if you are trying to see how your game will run dx9 games. I get over 11K in 06 but when 3dmark 07 comes out i say my score will go down to around 6500 so that 5900 score you where talking the 8600gts up with really means nothing when it comes to dx10.

Well though what everyone said does seem very true I wouldn't get an DirectX 10 card at this time. For example an 8800GTX that someone had was getting about 40FPS during battle and 60FPS during normal walking in that DX10 Demo!

Doesn't that say anything? From the looks of it (after taking in everything everyone has stated) the 8800GTX is going to turn into a mid ranged card. 8800GTS turning into a low range card when DirectX 10 comes out! (figured by the FPS they get) and anything below the 8800GTS series is just out of the picture..

Maybe ATi will come out with something far superior and powerful enough to stand up and conquer DirectX 10 games like the 7950GT did the DirectX 9 games.. 160FPS during normal walking around and a drop to about 135-145 during mid-ranged battle would be nice and even down to 120FPS under heavy MMO battles. Again just my opinion.
